The land down under sure seems like a magical place, doesn't it? The country is breathtaking, the beaches are gorgeous and the people have one of the best accents in the world. And the wildlife! Kangaroos and platypuses (platypi?). Tasmanian devils and dingos. Koala bears! There's a lot going on in Australia that seems so delightful. On the other hand, it's also teeming with deadly snakes and spiders. The summer heat skyrockets to unbearable levels and there are swarms of invasive species all over the place. Safe to say it's a mixed bag sometimes but hey, no place is perfect! And just because an animal is a deadly predator doesn't mean it's all bad. We all have to make a living, right?
The critters in Australia are just doing what they need to do to survive. Some of them are just much more terrifying than others. And maybe that appeals to you on some level. Maybe you can relate to a creature that's a little misunderstood just because it's rough around the edges sometimes. That just means it's multi-faceted, and who among us isn't? Why not take the quiz and see just which one of the deadly predators from Australia you're most like? Couldn't hurt as much as a spider bite.
